Sand For Walleyes in Fall?

3 posts in this topic

Has anyone tried the sand on the North end in the Fall for Walleyes and had any success? I personally have not even tried, but my curiousity is two fold. Number 1, I have a Walleye Whiffer map that suggests it. Number 2, after a few "interesting" experiences with low water and rocks in the last few weeks, it seems it would be easier and safer up there. Is this a viable strategy, or is it best to stay on the rocks?

Thanks,

JDM

I've never tried fishing the north sand in the fall, but I have done ok pulling rapalas sand on other areas of the lake. It's nice to fish because you normally don't have much competition, plus don't have to worry about getting snagged, probably not as many fish as the rocks though.

In my opinion, it's tough to beat "the sand bite". It has always treated me well.

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
